I spend a lot of time beating the road in a Ford F250 with a trailor attached, loaded with mowing equipment. Consequently, I have to drive slowly so that the mowers don't jump around and squash one another. It gives me more time to enjoy the beautiful valley that I live in.
The other day, I noticed an oddly shaped object by the side of the road. It appeared to be either a piece of driftwood or a varmint I'm not used to seeing. Anyway, at first glance I determined that it was going to require more effort to actually identify what I was looking at.
I slowed, leaned out the window, and strained my neck up and forward to get a good look. "What an oddly shaped animal", I thought to myself. "I wonder what it is."
Much to my surprise, I came eye to eye with a common groundhog. (I need to get my eyes checked!) He slowed his eating. He too leaned forward and strained his neck up and forward to get a good look at what was, oddly enough, looking at him.
What I'm now wondering is was he saying to himself, "What an oddly shaped animal. I wonder what it is?" I guess I'll never know.
